Portfolio Recovery Associates also referred to as Portfolio Recovery is one of the largest debt collection companies in the world. This collection agency purchases old debt from companies and tries to collect on it. Because in most cases, the debt is old, they can buy this debt for extremely cheap. They then start collection calls to get the money as fast as they can.
The collections services provided by Portfolio Recovery are real, however, they may not always be done the right, and fair way.
In fact in some instances, they go straight to sending out summons for court appearances in an attempt to get you to pay your debt faster. If you choose to ignore a summons, funds can be seized or your wages can be garnished to retrieve the owed monies. This is a scare tactic, but also may not be legit in some cases.
